TB Death rates and case incidence rates
These counters are based on the current number of cases (and deaths) reported and the rate of increase for both. Statistics were obtained from: the CDC(states 9 million active cases) and the NIAID at the NIH(states 8 million active cases). Both state 2 million deaths. Counting begins on Jan 1, 2013.
Counting is determined by:
Number of news cases each year / days / minutes / hours / seconds = rate of new cases per second
9000000 new cases of active TB each year
(((9000000.0 / 365.0) / 24.0) / 60) / 60 = 0.27 new cases per second
2000000 deaths by TB per year
(((2000000.0 / 365.0) / 24.0) / 60) / 60 = 0.063 deaths per second
